A simple never-fail fudge that is easy to make and is so rich and velvety that it'll fool you into thinking it was from a gourmet candy shoppe. I adapted this from a recipe my mom used and passed on to me several years ago. I love this recipe because you can put a variety of nuts and/or dried fruits ( i.e. finely chopped cranberries, cherries and of course, raisins) in it so you can make it for any occasion. It also works well with any kind of chips/morsels you want to use,( i.e. butterscotch, white chocolate, even special dark chocolate chips, yum....) just be sure to buy a quality chocolate to begin with like Ghirardelli chips, which are my personal favorite and found in most grocery stores. You'll also want to make sure you use a good butter and not margarine, although the recipe will work with it the fudge won't taste as rich and creamy.
